The Irving held a Texas-Size welcoming party for the Texas Society of Association Executives(TSAE). The annual New Ideas Conference kick-off celebration was on Sunday, Sept. 23, at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas and runs through Tuesday, September 25 at the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas. 

TSAE follows the American Society of Association Executives(ASAE) annual conference held in Dallas last month. Being the industry’s biggest conference of the year, ASAE drew more than 6,000 executives, exhibitors, vendors and guests to Dallas – the highest attendance for the conference since 2007. ASAE represents more than 21,000 association executives and industry partners representing 10,000 organizations. TSAE provides association professionals a community for collaboration, learning and leadership growth. The annual New Ideas Conference brings these professionals of Texas together for a three-day event to share and engage with experts to help advance their organizations. Members of TSAE represent more than 1,000 association professionals from Texas-based associations and societies, as well as corporations and firms that provide services to associations.

“TSAE’s members represent decision-makers and leaders for hundreds of trade, professional, not-for-profit and philanthropic associations.  To have these key influencers see Irving first-hand and up-close – including the new Irving Convention Center – gives us the ultimate opportunity to show off our city and its ability to host a wide range of meetings, conventions and events.” said Maura Allen Gast, executive director for the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau.
